Sammie's Birthday Whirlwind week is over, and I was so grateful to have a whole weekend off - free from any kind of events, classes, parties, etc. We just relaxed! It was amazing.
Anyway, if you are a long time reader, you might remember that over Christmas I was knitting gifts for all my family members - socks to be exact. Sadly, I didn't have time to finish Sammie's socks in time for Christmas, so I promised that she would get "Birthday socks". She reminded me almost every day from Dec 26-early January about my promise, so I was sure to get them done and not disappoint!
Here are her fun socks. I used a "magic" yarn that is self striping. It was really fun yarn to work with, and I'm anxious to do another pair in a different colorway. I can't remember the brand, but I picked this yarn up at JoAnne's and 1 skein (270 yards) was just perfect for a pair of kid socks (approx. size 1). Mittens would also be cute in this yarn.
I'll try to post a few of the pairs of "Christmas Socks" tomorrow.
